Hi I'm Sister Maria Allyse Budke

I'm a Mormon, I know it, I live it, and I love it. So come what may and know that you are not alone in the journey.

About Me

So far I am 19 years old, I have graduated High School GO LAYTON LANCERS! I am the oldest of five kids me myself I am the oldest. I have three sisters and one brother poor guy. We love him though. People who know me it's not hard to talk to me I never am too shy to get to know someone i have never met before and it's a blessing because people just come right back not shy at all. Some of my hobbies are I love to sing, dance (preferably not alone), I love nerd shows like Doctor Who, Star Wars, Star Trek, my dad loved these shows so i grew up knowing all about geek and all the endings to Harry Potter or The Hobbit before it came out which I may add was not the best! I'm just a normal girl who is getting ready to travel the world. See all of its beauty maybe live in a different country see others meet new friends I'm ready for my adventure and it will never stop.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized when i was 9 years old i know usually others in Utah get baptized at 8 years old well hey that just makes me special. But lucky for me I didn't get to have this day alone my younger sister was baptized the same day as me because at the time she was 8. I am a Mormon because I believe that this is the true church i have prayed, knelled, and cried. And each time the spirit has always helped me through my trials. I am who I am today because of the gospel I have no clue where I would be and try not to think cause why wish for another life when I LOVE the life I have been given.

How I live my faith

Well for the next year and a half living in faith will practically be the easy part why you may ask well I am going on a mission I believe that others around the world show know of the blessing and love that they can receive just through being LDS how I live my faith the woman I am today is because of the way I lived I made good friends who lifted me up all the time and same vice versa. I attended seminary no it's not a boring class it was actually one of the classes I always looked forward to. But now as I take this part of my life I am excited to show others. One of the highlights of living life with my faith is that I have someone to always count on and all I have to do is pray to Him, I know that whatever life brings or the mistakes made I can rely on my Father in Heaven for anything. Just ask Him yourself.
